LUNCH WITH SCIENCE-INNOVATIVE PROJECT IN EDUCATION RESEARCH 2016

La alumna del Máster de Educación de la Universidad de La Laguna Corina Abreu Rodríguez  ha realizado su proyecto de prácticas del máster en el centro IES Cabrera Pinto. Ayer realizó su lectura de proyecto fin de máster en la Universidad de La Laguna y obtuvo una calificación de 9,6. Desde aquí queremos darle nuestras felicitaciones y el agradecimiento por haber realizado un proyecto tan interesante y atractivo para nuestro alumnado. A continuación proyectamos un vídeo que muestra en que consistió este proyecto.

ERASMUS KA 1 “Language improvement for teachers”

            Al profesorado que pertenece al programa CLIL se le recomienda cada cierto tiempo que realice cursos de perfeccionamiento, con el objeto de “refrescar” y  “poner al día” las habilidades comunicativas de la lengua , en este caso en inglés. Con este fin, la profesora de Biología y Geología, Marta Casariego Ramírez, que pertenece al programa CLIL de este centro, asistió a un curso de “Language improvement for teachers” organizado por NILE Manchester, desde el 2 de Julio hasta el 16 de Julio de 2016.  El curso consistió en diversas actividades (que se adjuntan)  donde el objetivo fundamental fue desarrollar un proyecto personal en el que se analizaron cuales eran las fortalezas y debilidades con respecto a las habilidades en la lengua inglesa así como estrategias que permiten mejorar estas habilidades a corto y largo plazo. Se adjunta una presentación donde se valoran esos aspectos.

TENERIFE. November 2015

By Melany Gutierrez Prieto, Héctor Martín Suárez, Ariadna White, Brígida Siverio, Elizabeth Hurtado Adriana Pérez and  Ana Clara Martinez

María Elena Cabrera and Marta Casariego coordinated the exchange programme. In November, the Danish students travelled to Tenerife.

All the week, different visits were organiZed. So that our guests could know different parts of the island. Some of the places visited were Puerto de la Cruz or the Teide and the museums of Santa Cruz too.

STOVRING.  April 2016

A group of 11 students travelled to Denmark from 31st March to 7th April. They participated in lots of activities done in the Stovring Gymnasium and they also visited museum and other interesting sites.

The two activities  we enjoyed the most were done by the English and Maths teachers. They involved “critical thinking”, and students participating in interesting challenging problem solving tasks. The students read a text  narrating a story that apparently had happened.  Then, we watched a film  about it.  The second activity was a Maths game. The points were given after solving some problems.

Héctor Martín, one of the students told us about the problems they had before reaching Aalborg.

“I went to Denmark with my high school. We enjoyed it so much. But not everything came out as we had planned. We went to the airport at 6.00 o’ clock in the morning because the airplane took off at 7.00, but that day it was so stormy that we couldn’t fly from the Rodeos airport, so we went to the south of the island and finally the plane took off at 8. 15. When we arrived in Barcelona airport, more problems arouse, because we had lost our connection with the other plane and our luggage got lost too.

So, we had to spend this day at the Barcelona airport waiting for the luggage, which finally arrived. Luckily, the plane company paid a very good hotel for us. It was near the airport because the next plane to Copenhagen took off the next morning so early. Although we were very tired we spent a great night in Barcelona. Many of us didn’t sleep much!

In the morning we finally flew to Copenhagen and then to Aalborg. 

The students and their families, the school and the place was incredible. Despite the delays this trip has been my dream come true.

ERASMUS KA2: AVITAE DAY in The Canarias Cabrera Pinto

“FEELING PART OF EUROPE”

poster

A cultural week is celebrated in our high school every year when different exhibitions and visits take place. This event was chosen to show our AVITAE project to all the community.  From 13th to 17th April all the students in the High School had the opportunity to know about the project. We created  a poster which summarizes the concept of AVITAE,  pictures the schools involved and the dates of meetings.

We also showed some posters elaborated by the students about the origin of entrepreneurship in the Mediterranean sea: trade routes, products, coins. Hermes, the god of trade, played a special role in our day, with a amazing picture. Many students enjoyed the exhibitions, guided by the AVITAE teachers and students.
In addition, AVITAE students went to different classes and talked about their experience in the project showing the activities they had done: prezzis, prototype IMG_4466designs, powerpoints, videos, pictures… They answered all the questions asked by the other students and invited all of them to participate. All the students could appreciate the different educational opportunities that these kind of international meetings can offer them, feeling the Canary Islands are closer to Europe.

To finish off the week, we had the performance of a puppet show called “Travel with Aeneas”. He was one of the heroes of classical times who persistently tried to succeed despite all the troubles he had to encounter. An ancient model for any modern entrepreneur.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________Durante Durante la primera semana de noviembre, se celebró en Pyhäjoki, Finlandia, el primer encuentro entre los profesores y profesoras de los países que participan en el proyecto. Allí se fijaron los primeros pasos y objetivos y se nos emplazó para el siguiente encuentro que será en la última semana de Enero del 2015 y al que ya asistirán alumnos y alumnas de los distintos centros.

Ofrece una oportunidad interesante para el trabajo colaborativo, la práctica de la lengua inglesa, las TICs, el conocimiento de los clásicos, de nuestra  historia y la del resto de países participantes; una forma diferente de conocer Europa y sus gentes y de que nuestro alumnado reciba una formación más integral, actual e innovadora.
